The Vagliano Trophy and the Junior Vagliano Trophy scheduled to be played on 25 and 26 June at Golf Club de Lausanne, Switzerland have been postponed due to travel restrictions as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We are disappointed to have to announce the postponement of the Vagliano Trophy Matches.” said EGA President, Haukur Örn Birgisson.
“With the current travel restrictions in place in Switzerland we were unfortunately left with little choice. We will try our very best to host the matches this year, and have started exploring alternative options with our friends at The R&A.”
Revised dates for the matches, played between the best amateur women and girls from Great Britain and Ireland and the Continent of Europe, will be advised by The R&A and EGA in due course.
The Vagliano Trophy is a women’s amateur international match between Great Britain and Ireland and the Continent of Europe. Since 1959, it has been staged biennially and, following the merger of the Ladies’ Golf Union and The R&A, is now organised by The R&A and the European Golf Association (EGA).
The Junior Vagliano Trophy is a girls’ international match between Great Britain and Ireland and the Continent of Europe and was introduced in 2011.
